June 3, 2020

Milwaukee County ExecutiveMILWAUKEE — Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley will be the featured guest in an upcoming virtual “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, June 10. The video will be available on the Marquette University Law School website at 12:15 p.m.

The event is available to members of the general public.

Crowley, a 34-year-old former state representative, scored a narrow victory in April, becoming the first African American in county history elected to the position of county executive. His goal is to improve the quality of life for all county residents. He recognizes the job won’t be easy as the county faces serious challenges: rising pension costs, millions of dollars in deferred parks maintenance and the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, which will mean millions of dollars in lost revenue. Gousha and Crowley will also discuss the local protests that followed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the larger issue of race in Milwaukee County.

Gousha, an award-winning journalist, continues his “On the Issues” series of provocative and insightful interviews with local and national public officials, journalists and other newsmakers throughout the year. A complete schedule is available online.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars, conferences on significant issues of public importance and the work of its Lubar Center for Public Policy Research and Civic Education, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
